There’s a lot of information out there about herbs and supplements and sometimes it’s hard to know where to start. But if you’re interested in using medicinal herbs, doing your homework first is definitely a good idea.

Herbs can be used to treat many different medical conditions, some mild and some severe. But as with pharmaceutical drugs, herbal medicines can have serious side effects, especially when you start combining them. In general, it’s always a good idea to do a little research on a new medication before you begin taking it and consult your health care provider—especially if you’re taking other herbs or drugs.

Here are a few resources on medicinal herbs that can get you started. Enjoy exploring!

Please add another reference to your list. www.herbalhealer.com Marijah is a world reknown Naturopath. She has some products but you can also ask her questions on Wednesdays. Research through her site and you will find a lot of information. There are also some links. She also posts testimonials from people who tell you what they used and what it helped. Through this site we were able to get the information for my mom's liver disease and put her on the milk thistle. Even the doctors have noticed a change and asked her what she was doing.
